If you are a fan of Almond Joy Candy Bars, this is the cookie for you. I happen to love coconut and one of my favorite cookies for years has been the Magic Cookie Bars and these Almond Joy Cookies.

Honestly, it was so tough for me to chose five of the best Christmas Cookies. I love cookies!!! Cookies are my all time favorite dessert. In my home, cookies are often substitute lieu of a birthday cake.

One of my favorite thing about the holidays are getting cookies, baking cookies, giving cookies and eating cookies. LOL

Like many of my recipes, they have been tweaked over the years to become exactly the recipe I love to bake and eat. I hope you enjoy this one.

This cookie will be very sticky. I use my 1″ cookie scoop. I will get a heaping scoop of the mix and gently roll to shape a ball.

This cookies tastes great with a hot cup of coffee. My problem, I need to stay out of them until Christmas!
